Well, unless you expect Mozilla to render arbitrarily-broken HTML, knock out all the ones that don't pass the W3C validator. If they pass, we should be getting it right.

Then, knock out all the ones that detect the "Netscape" string and assume we support layers. This is bad browser sniffing on their part.

Also, remember that HTML is not a page description language. Unless the author has styled them to a particular size, we are allowed to render e.g. text boxes any way we want.

Lastly, make very sure that it's not IE which is misrendering it. I've come across one bug like this recently - "IE is the only thing that renders this right!" -> "Actually, Mozilla gets it right; your CSS is wrong but IE is broken too."
